Fabric membranes as Daylighting Control Systems in buildings
Mundo Hernandez, Julia Judith (2006) Fabric membranes as Daylighting Control Systems in buildings. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The latter half of the 20th century saw the development of lightweight tensioned translucent membranes as shading devices and their increasing use in providing daylight and daylight control. Buildings with high lighting consumption and long operation hours in particular are including translucent membranes in their daylighting strategies. For this reason, the use of reliable tools for the prediction of the lighting environment experienced in daylit spaces, which exploit translucent membranes, has become essential.
